This week I was quoted in an article in Healthy Way sharing about our parents parenting vs.our parenting (with au-mazing gifts.
I told HealthyWay, “My parents’ manner of raising was always children should be seen and not heard …
Growing up where you were not allowed to express yourself in any capacity unless asked was a major traditional and cultural experience.”
Dr. Griffith says that the way she was raised had a definite impact on how she thinks about parenting. “Today, I am very receptive to providing a safe space of communication once it’s respectful and not done when angry. I think it empowers our children from [a young age to know] that they matter and allows them to express their thoughts [in] a safe zone.”
